Indeed. We don't get many C# questions around here, but I'm sure we have a forum where this one would be at home. Let's try...

In the future, you can export hotmail contacts by going to your contact list, select all, then click manage, click export....this will export your contact list in the .csv format (which can be opened with excel)....I am pretty sure this .csv file can then be imported into your new account effectively bringing your contacts with you .

Hope this helps.
